If you are looking for vendors of DS420 spare parts go to my web-links page.

This manual RTC9887CD (Oct.1985) is the last Parts Catalogue that appeared in printed form. It explicitly states that it only serves the limousines built from July 1980 onwards (i.e. the cars that have the General Motors GM400 gearbox fitted). The full text of its introduction follows below. This manual is included on the Unipart/JDHT CD-ROM described elsewhere on this web site.

The manual bears the following note: Printed in England by Coventry Printers (9/85 35737).

Earlier editions of this manual appeared as RTC9887CA (April 1982), RTC9887CB (March 1983) and RTC9887CC (Sept.1984). Their contents are almost identical as (and superseded by) the RTC9887CD. Therefore, the web-pages shown here are taken from the latest edition RTC9887CD exclusively, except for the front page of an earlier edition shown at the right (click to enlarge). This RTC9887CC manual bears the following note: Printed in England by Coventry Printers (75 9/84 34003).

Overlapping with these publication dates, starting from January 1979, the parts catalogue was also available in microfiche form. The first one had part number RTC9877FA. These microfiches were updated a few times per year and labeled RTC9877FA, RTC9877FB, RTC9877FC etc. In 1981 the prefix of the label changed from RTC9877 to RTC9887, again with a two letter suffix (three letter suffix from July 1987) to distinguish the subsequent editions. Most editions consist of two fiches, where one fiche holds up to 504 page images. The forelast one in my collection has part number RTC9887FAF and dates from February 1990. Strange enough, the very last one has part number RTC9887FAG and is dated August 2000 (!!). I am still looking for a way to publish a selection of these editions on this web site.

For older cars you must refer to Parts Catalogue RTC9183B (July 1978, or its earlier edition RTC9183A of Jan. 1976), or to the very first Catalogue JC53 (1972).


This introduction text is taken from the manual verbatim

This Parts Catalogue is to be used for all Limousine models with the GM400 Auto Trans fitted both Home and Export specifications, the part numbers quoted are always common to all models unless otherwise stated, in which case differences are noted in the Heading or the Remarks column.
This catalogue does not include parts peculiar to Landaulette or Hearse models.
As the list caters for both Home and Export markets, reference is made throughout the text to the "right hand"(RH) and "left hand"(LH) sides of the car. The "left hand side" is that to the left hand when the car is viewed from the rear; similarly, "left hand drive"(LHD) models are those having the drive control on the left hand side, again when the car is viewed from the rear.
The heading of each assembly is printed in capital letters, whilst the spares relevant to each assembly are printed in small type and inset to the right. The fact that certain items (printed in small type) are not inset indicates that they do not form part of any assembly and must, therefore, be ordered as individual items.

The above Vehicle Identification Prefix code DWAZL3AC for chassis-only cars is not conforming to the VIN-chart published by Jaguar much later (see it here) which states that the prefix would be DWAWL3AC.

The following list gives entries to the sorted list of part numbers. The first part number on every page is shown. Note that part numbers like 37H 8863 typically sort by the H. If you found your part under the clickpoints below, remember the "Ref.No" column which actually is a page number. Then come back here, and look up that page number in the sequential list above.

For efficiency reasons all drawings have had their white boundaries cut away. Occasionally it was necessary to reposition the page number, drawing number and/or the page header text in order to fit all pages in an equal frame size. Therefore these elements may show in a slightly different position than they are on the real bookpages. Drawing numbers (located at the bottom right of many pages) may have their last digits missing.
